About the filmmakers


MR BROOKS marks a major departure for Academy Award-nominated screenwriter Bruce A Evans (Director, Co-Screenwriter) and his second outing as a director. Evans previously directed the comedy “Kuffs,” starring Christian Slater and Mila Jovovich, which he also co-wrote with his long-time partner Raynold Gideon.

Evans and Gideon have been a screenwriting team since 1979's "A Man, A Woman and a Bank.” They went on to co-write the popular sci-fi romance “Star Man,” about an alien who takes the form of a young widow’s husband, directed by John Carpenter and starring Jeff Bridges in the title role. This was followed by “Stand By Me,” their adaptation of Stephen King’s novella “The Body,” which would become a classic coming-of-age story directed by Rob Reiner and starring Wil Wheaton, River Phoenix and Kiefer Sutherland. The screenplay garnered Evans and Gideon an Oscar nomination, the Independent Spirit Award for Best Screenplay and a Writer’s Guild Award nomination, among other accolades.

Next came the fantasy “Made In Heaven,” directed by Alan Rudolph and starring Timothy Hutton and Kelly McGillis; “Kuffs,” on which Evans made his directorial debut; and the pirate adventure “Cutthroat Island” directed by Rennie Harlin. The duo also served as production consultants on the box-office hit “Honey, I Shrunk The Kids.” Continuing in the comedy vein, Evans and Gideon adapted the French film “Un Indien Dans La Ville” into the hit Tim Allen comedy “Jungle 2 Jungle.”

Evans has also served as a producer on Richard Donner’s critically admired “Assassins” starring Sylvester Stallone, Antonio Banderas and Julianne Moore.
